Chandana started her exploration of Yoga in the year 2000.
At first, it was all about asanas, until 2009, when she decided to quit her corporate job in banking and insurance, to delve deeper into her yoga studies. She completed her Yoga and Philosophy Course from The Yoga Institute, Mumbai, in 2010.
It was in 2011 when she found her calling - Ashtanga Yoga. One class in a festival in Rishikesh was all it took to convince her to book the tickets for Mysore, to study with her Guruji Shri R Sharath Jois.
She has been studying under his guidance ever since, and received Level II Authorization in 2016. She runs her own Mysore program in Pune India, and regularly travel and teaches Mysore classes and workshops in other Shalas around the world.
